How does using a Privileged Access Workstation (PAW) make me more secure?

Using a Privileged Access Workstation (PAW) to access servers and applications reduces the attack surface of your servers and applications by limiting which systems can communicate with them. A PAW is a heavily fortified and instrumented system only allowed to perform privileged administrative tasks on server systems. The privileged activities are easily categorized, which makes potentially malicious activities easier to spot. This is enhanced by sending logs to a central logging facility and alerting on events.
